Cape Town - Cape Town City owner John Comitis says he's not bothered by head coach Benni McCarthy's link to St Mirren.
The former Bafana Bafana striker has reportedly been linked with the managerial vacancy at the Scottish Premier League club.
McCarthy recently completed his first professional season as a head coach in the Absa Premiership, where he guided the Citizens to a fifth-place finish.
"Until I'm told anything from Benni himself‚ I'm assuming it's business as usual‚" Comitis told TimesLIVE website.
"The last conversation I had with coach Benni (was) 48 hours ago (and) we discussed players we are trying to target‚ to sign‚ so I'm not anticipating any issues.
"But as you know‚ football is football‚ but at this stage we carry on as normal."
McCarthy is scheduled to return to South Africa later this month, as he is set to be a football analyst on broadcasting channel, SuperSport, during the 2018 Soccer World Cup.
Comitis says that the 40-year-old will return for a second season as pre-season training starts at the end of Monday, June 25.
"At the end of the day‚ we go with what we have. We faced this exact situation with Eric (Tinkler) and we got Benni," Comitis said.
"At this stage‚ as far as I'm concerned‚ he's going back to start training on the 25th (of June). Benni signed a three-year deal and even if you have a contract‚ you know you can buy the whole contract out.
"If it's a team from the UK‚ I'm sure they can afford that if they really want to‚ but it doesn't depend on that. It depends on what Benni wants."
